La Manoir du Diable (The Devilâs Castle) was released on Christmas Eve, 1896, at the Theatre Robert Houdin, 8 boulevard des Italiens, Paris. It is only about 3 minutes long and although its creator intended it to be amusing most people consider it to be a horror film. You can find out more about Le Manoir du Diable at A Passion For Horror.

Poor copy, very bad quality (it exists much more better).
In fact, this is a George Méliès movie, it would have been nice to mention it, and it was not filmed in Paris, but at Méliès Studio, in Montreuil.
